With INFANTICIDE now a core “value” of Democrats, all decent, life-loving human beings must denounce the Democrat party


Image: With INFANTICIDE now a core “value” of Democrats, all decent, life-loving human beings must denounce the Democrat party

There’s no two ways about it anymore: the Democrat Party is evil beyond words. And with the Democrats’ recent voting down of a bill, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, that would have protected the lives of newly-born children from being murdered alive by abortionists, it’s now undeniably evident that there’s no possible way for decent human beings who support human rights and life in general to, in any way, identify as Democrats.

As if their love for abortion wasn’t already bad enough, today’s Democrats see nothing wrong with delivering the child victims of failed abortions and allowing them to die on the delivery table, all in the name of “reproductive rights” and “choice.” This newfound adoption of infanticide, a.k.a. baby murder, as one of their core “values” proves once and for all that Democrats hate human life, and openly embrace the “progressive” policy of murdering babies after they’ve already left the womb.

We might as well start referring to the Democrat Party as the Death Party – the party that will “cry” over the deaths of children whenever it suits their agenda of trying to scrap the Second Amendment, but that hoots, hollers, cheers, and claps when legislation is passed and signed that allows newborn babies to be chopped into bits and trashed as “medical waste” upon breathing their first breath of air.

There’s certainly no place for real Christians in the Democrat Party, which embraces pretty much every evil thing that the Bible condemns. Whether it’s brainwashing innocent children into believing that there are unlimited genders, or silencing free speech about the dangers of vaccines, the Democrat Party wants to destroy all that is good and wholesome, and replace it with every type of vice and wickedness.

Things have taken a major turn for the worse since 2002, when a bipartisan Senate UNANIMOUSLY affirmed that born-alive children are human beings deserving of life

Believe it or not, it wasn’t that long ago that Democrats, or at least some of them, still had some level of conscience within their beings. Back in 2002, in fact, Democrats in the Senate unanimously, along with Republicans, voted to pass the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. This bill recognized all born children as “human persons,” affording them the same rights and protections as all other humans.

But somehow over the years, the Democrat Party decided that granting human life status to newborn babies infringed upon “women’s rights,” and here we are today.

“In just over a decade and a half, Democrats have gone from ‘safe, legal, and rare abortions’ to ‘kill ’em all and don’t stop when they’re born,’” writes Matt Walsh for The Daily Wire. “Many of us warned that the first slogan would lead eventually to the second. We take no pleasure in our vindication.”

As you may recall, it was the Republican Party that had to step up to the plate in the past to stamp out another evil known as slavery, which was openly embraced by the Democrat Party. And it’s now up to Republicans once again to intervene on behalf of society’s most vulnerable, unborn and newborn babies, to protect them from the Democrat Party death cult.

“It is probably not a coincidence that the Democrat Party, through its long and sordid history, has supported both of those peculiar institutions,” Walsh adds about the Democrats’ support for both slavery and baby murder.

“What a force for evil it has been. But what amazing consistency – to always fall on the wrong side of every human rights issue.”

Scientists Have Figured out How Life Is Able to Survive


IN BRIEF
  • A new sequencing technique that maps out and analyzes DNA damage demonstrates how bacterial cells function in two critical excision repair proteins.
  • The team’s research and discovery not only heralds the use of this new mapping technique, it could also pave the way for a solution that will help address antibiotic resistance.

DNA-REPAIR SYSTEMS

Every day, the DNA in our cells gets damaged. This might sound scary, but it’s actually a normal occurrence – which makes DNA’s ability to repair itself vital to our survival. Now, scientists are beginning to better understand exactly how these repairs happen. A new sequencing technique that maps out and analyzes DNA damage demonstrates how bacterial cells function in two critical excision repair proteins: Mfd and UvrD.

The process, called nucleotide excision repair, has been used by a team from the UNC School of Medicine to gain a deeper insight into the key molecular functions of these repair systems, including the proteins’ roles in living cells. This repair process is known for fixing a common form of DNA damage called the “bulky adduct,” where a toxin or ultraviolet (UV) radiation chemically modifies the DNA.

The technique, called XR-seq lets the scientists isolate and sequence sections of DNA with the bulky adduct, thus allowing them to identify its actual locations in the genome. It has previously been used to generate a UV repair map of the human genome, as well as a map for the anticancer cisplatin drug.

For this study, scientists used the same method to repair damage caused by E. coli. As co-author of the study, Christopher P. Selby, PhD explained:

When the DNA of a bacterial gene is being transcribed into RNA, and the molecular machinery of transcription gets stuck at a bulky adduct, Mfd appears on the scene, recruits other repair proteins that snip away the damaged section of DNA, and “un-sticks” the transcription machinery so that it can resume its work. This Mfd-guided process is called transcription-coupled repair, and it accounts for a much higher rate of excision repair on strands of DNA that are being actively transcribed.

A POTENTIAL SOLUTION

In further experiments, the researchers defined the role of an accessory excision repair protein in E. coli – UvrD, which helps clear away each excised segment of damaged DNA. Essentially, think of Mfd as the DNA “un-sticker” and UvrD as the “unwinder.” Using the XR-seq method, scientists discovered evidence of transcription-coupled repair in normal cells, but not in cells without Mfd—implying that the protein played a key role in its repair process.

The team’s research and discovery not only heralds the use of this new mapping technique, it could also pave the way for a solution that will help address the pressing, global threat of antibiotic resistance.

“If we fail to address this problem quickly and comprehensively, antimicrobial resistance will make providing high quality universal health coverage more difficult, if not impossible,” the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said. “[Antibiotic resistance] a fundamental, long-term threat to human health, sustainable food production and development.”

To support their current research, the team now plans to study XR-seq in bacterial, human and mammalian cells, to better understand the excision repair process.

How To Supercharge Your Dopamine Levels To Never Feel Sad, Stressed Or Depressed Again


Our brain releases a neurotransmitter, dopamine, which is crucial for numerous essential bodily functions. Dopamine is great for the following body functions:

– Regulating movement
– Controlling the center of pleasure and reward in the brain
– Improving the cognitive functions (knowledge, attention, memory, decision-making, evaluation, problem solving)
– Regulating the secretion of prolactin

Since it is extremely important for our wellbeing and happiness, the reduced levels of dopamine lead to various health issues, such as depression, sadness, negativity and various emotional troubles.

Fortunately, there are 10 effective ways to raise the dopamine levels in the body, without using medications:

1. EXERCISE

The exercise of every kind raises the levels of dopamine, serotonin, and endorphin. Regular exercise provides happiness, strengthens the body, reduces stress. Try the plank.

2. AVOID ADDICTIONS

Addiction to alcohol, drugs, gambling, and even shopping, provide an instant pleasure, but it is not a permanent solution. Additions only temporarily satisfy our needs.

Moreover, addictions alter our lifestyle in favor of the source of the addiction, and it is a wicked cycle. Therefore, you should try and lower the risk of developing addictions, enjoy life, and find things that provide deeper calmness and happiness. Also, it is of great importance to work a job you enjoy.

3. DETOXIFICATION

Make sure you regularly detoxify your system, as the accumulation of toxins and bacteria in the body prevents the dopamine production and weakens the immunity. Try this one.

4. INCREASE TYROSINE

Tyrosine is one of the 22 essential amino acids used for the creation of proteins. It is actually the most important chemical for the dopamine production of dopamine.

Besides dopamine, it also has the potential to elevate norepinephrine levels. In order to raise its levels in the body, you should consume green tea, watermelon, almonds, bananas, avocados, and dark chocolate.

5. MUSIC

Dopamine levels are also increased through listening to music, even though it may be short-term. Therefore, use music as a common way to raise dopamine levels. And by the way playing an instrument makes you smarter (science reveals).

6. ORGANIZE YOUR LIFE

The levels of dopamine are raised in the case of organized small daily tasks, even though they are hard at times. You should write your tasks down on a piece of paper, and check them off. In this way, you will be satisfied as you note that you finish them one by one.

The Principles of Self-Management state that if a task represents a change of 25% (or bigger change) in the routine, you will feel unable to finish it, and often ends up with a self-sabotage or giving up.

If the task changes 10% of your routine, you will succeed to complete it, as you will believe it is small. Therefore, balance tasks to be 10 and 25% of new behaviors, in order to try new and challenging things, but still not too difficult to complete.

7. CREATIVITY

The levels of dopamine in the brain are also elevated with a creative activity. This will also keep you focused. You do not need to become a world-known artist but try dancing, singing, writing, sculpturing, painting, drawing, cooking, knitting, making crafts, and auto repair, and you will feel much better right away.

8. GET A STREAK GOING

In this sense, “streak” will mean a visual reminder of the number of times in a row you do something. This is similar to organizing the tasks, and accomplishing them. This will raise the levels of dopamine, and make you happier and satisfied. You should use a calendar, written your goals, and plan when to complete them. As soon as you finish the task, mark it off on your calendar. Yet, the drawback of the ‘streak’ is routine, so you should find a way to enhance the performance.

9. SUPPLEMENTATION

Dopamine levels can also be raised through supplementation, such as:

  • Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, effectively increases dopamine in the brain.
  • Ginkgo Biloba has a potential to raise dopamine levels as well.
  • Acetyl-l-tyrosine is a building block of dopamine, so a healthy dose of it supports the production of dopamine in the brain.
  • L-theanine increases numerous neurotransmitters in the brain, including dopamine. Green tea is a rich source of l-theanine.

Note: consult a doctor before using any of the above

10. MEDITATION

Meditation raises the levels of dopamine in a different way that cardio exercises. It improves your mood, creates mental energy, and relaxes the mind. Meditation is an efficient way to reduce stress on a daily basis. Harvard MRI studies proved that meditation literally rebuilds your brain gray matter in 8 weeks!

7 Things to Remember When Life Gets Rough


When life gets rough and you feel like giving up, it helps to remember these 7 things. Why? Because they will help you find the necessary strength, courage and confidence to move forward and do the things you deep down inside know you should be doing.

7 Things to Remember When Life Gets Rough

Here are 7 Things to Remember When Life Gets Rough:

1. Remember the story about David and Goliath.

When life gets rough and you feel like giving up, remember the story of the young man David and the giant Goliath. Remember how, even though David was but a young shepherd, and Goliath a warrior from his youth, David managed to defeat Goliath. By not allowing the outside circumstances to overwhelm and intimidate him, he focused on his inner strength and the power he knew for sure that was present within him, and as a result, he defeated Goliath. Be like David. Don’t let the size of your problems overwhelm and intimidate you.

2. Life may be tough, but you are tougher.

No matter how many challenges life will send your way, and no matter how big and overwhelming your problems might seem at times, you have to remind yourself that you are bigger than all of your problems. And that you can deal with whatever life send your way. Life may be tough, but you are tougher.

3. When life gets rough, remember that Diamonds are made under pressure.

I really love how Peter Marshall spoke about this: “When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure.” Diamonds are made under pressure and oak trees grow strong in contrary winds. And just like a diamond, you too need the pressure in order to be polished and refined. You too need the winds in order to grow strong, bold and confident. Remember this when life gets rough!

4. Every problem comes with a gift.

Richard Bach said it better than anyone else ever has, or will: “There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands. You seek problems because you need their gifts.”

Every problem comes with a gift, and if you have mountains of problems in your hands to solve, you will soon have mountains of gifts in your life to enjoy. And this is something you should definitely remind yourself in those moments when life gets rough and you feel like giving up.

5. There can be no lotus flower without the mud.

We all want to live lives free of pain, sorrow, darkness and difficulties, but these things are part of life. And just as the lotus flower needs the mud in order to come to life, you too need these challenges in order to cleanse yourself of yourself and become all that life created you to be.

6. Life is a journey.

Life is a journey, not a destination. And every experience and every interaction life sends your way, no matter if good or bad, is meant to shape you, to guide you, to lead you, and to help you craft a life that is worth living. Enjoy the journey. 

7. Your life is your story.

You are the main character of your life, the hero of your life story. And when the time will come for you to leave this world, looking back at your life, you will perceive all these challenges and all difficulties, different than you do now. You will look back at all your struggles and all your difficulties with gratitude and contentment, knowing that they were the ones that help you become all that you have become. 

How To Refinance Everything In Your Life


Let’s play a little word-association game. What comes to mind when you hear the word “refinance”? If you answered “mortgages,” you’re not alone. A mortgage is the one type of loan that’s probably most frequently associated with refinancing. But refinancing goes beyond just helping people give their mortgages a makeover: Did you know that the concept of a refi can apply to just about any kind of loan, from your student loans to your auto loan?

2016-05-10-1462898236-3465386-WomanWorkingAtTable050216.jpg
Whether you’re renting a pricey studio apartment in San Francisco, CA, or a home in Richmond, VA, if you’re a renter with any type of loan, it’s worth understanding how the process works — and how it can help you.

How can renters take advantage of refinancing?
You can refinance almost any type of debt, not just mortgages. If you have car loans or student loans, for example, you may be able to refinance them. Refinancing simply means you’re taking one loan and replacing it with another, with the new loan having different (and preferably more favorable) terms than the old one. You may want to refinance a loan to get a better interest rate than your original debt carries or to reduce the monthly payment you make. You can also consolidate many loans into a single one. Any of these outcomes can make personal debts easier to manage — and therefore easier for you to repay.

If you have a variable-rate loan and long for a more stable monthly payment, you may want to refinance simply to secure terms that present a little less risk. For example, swapping that variable-rate loan for a loan with a fixed interest rate could help with budgeting. But if you’re thinking about refinancing a loan to enjoy one or more of these potential benefits, it’s important to understand that there are two kinds of refis to choose from: rate-and-term and cash-out.

What you need to know about rate-and-term refinancing
If you’re interested in refinancing something like an auto loan or student loans to get a better interest rate or change the loan term, consider rate-and-term refinancing. This type of refinancing can be beneficial to borrowers if you originally took out your loan when interests rates were much higher than what you can get today. It’s also helpful if you need to alter the amount of your monthly payment. A refi can update the loan term, and changing the length of that term will impact how much you owe each month.

What about cash-out refinancing?
Cash-out refinancing offers you an interesting option. Going with this type of refi means that your new loan is for more than your existing loan. You get the difference between the new loan and the old in cash. It’s great to have this extra money in hand, but keep in mind, this increases the debt that you carry. You’ll need to repay the entirety of the loan plus the cash you received, and you’ll have to pay interest on all of it.

Before refinancing everything, consider the downsides
While both these refinancing options can be helpful to borrowers, there are some downsides. Just because you carry some debts doesn’t mean a refi will help you manage your repayment or will save you money over time.

If you want to refinance student loans, for example, you need to remember that this process replaces your old debt with a new one — and that new loan will come with new terms and benefits. Some federal loans are eligible for benefits like payment programs or even loan forgiveness. If you refinance, you could be disqualified from accessing that repayment help.

And refinancing any loan comes with a cost. You’ll be originating a whole new loan, so expect to pay fees just like you did when you originally borrowed the money. This could eliminate any savings you’d accrue over time via a lower interest rate, so always do the math before making your decision. Refinancing could cost you more money in interest over time too. Changing the terms of your loan may lower your monthly payments, but it could also mean you make those payments for a longer time. Stretching out the life of your loan also means paying more in interest. It’s important to weigh the costs, because you might be surprised to find that continuing to pay down your current loans could remain the best option for you.

Bottom line: Should you consider refinancing your loans?
Ultimately, the decision of whether to refinance the loans in your life will depend on your personal situation. Are you doing well in managing the repayment of your debts? If so, you may be better off continuing to do what you’ve been doing to pay down those balances and reach debt freedom. If, on the other hand, you could secure a lower interest rate, get a more manageable monthly payment, or enjoy better terms on a new loan, consider refinancing. Refinancing isn’t just for homeowners, so don’t be afraid to find out if a refi could improve your financial life.

Years of life, or life to years?


The plight of elderly patients continues to make headline news. Those who have been in hospital, are now ready to leave but cannot be discharged – because they are waiting for NHS services such as community physiotherapy, or social care services such as home visits – are particularly relevant for an NHS straining under pressures of numbers and budgets. In jargon, these patients are DToCs – “delayed transfer of care”. Every needless day that patients remain in hospital costs approximately £650 – as we used to say – “the most expensive B&B in the UK”. In June, Age UK reported that between June 2010 and March 2015, 2.43 million bed days were wasted, as people waited for social care so they could leave hospital. This is no small-scale problem.

However, it is a struggle to find the few available and affordable places in care homes, or the private agencies that can provide carers to visit patients at home at the right time and for the right price in rural areas. The shortage of places means the private care companies, on whom councils now rely, can set whatever price they wish. The average national cost of a place in a care home is now £29,389 per year. Of course, most don’t want to go into residential care at all. The aim of social services, for financial and humane reasons, is to keep them in their own homes for as long as possible – but care packages (with frequent visits to frail people) also don’t come cheap.

To paraphrase Edmund Blackadder: “We haven’t got enough money, Baldrick.” We can keep re-organising the deck chairs, but the ship is still sinking.

For those who find themselves in a nursing home, new ways of thinking could improve the quality of their final years. I recently read Being Mortal by Atul Gawande. He recounts the tale of how a nursing home in New York was transformed when a young doctor started working there. Initially the nursing home depressed him. At first, he tried to fix it the way that, as a doctor, he knew best. Seeing the residents so lethargic, he suspected that some unrecognised condition or improper combination of medicines might be afflicting them. So he set about doing physical examinations of the residents and ordering scans and tests and changing their medications. But, after several weeks of investigations and alterations, he had accomplished little except driving the medical bills up and making the nursing staff crazy. He was sure something better must be possible for them. So, acting on little more than instinct, he decided to try to put some life into the nursing home (the way that he had done in his own home), by literally putting life into it. If he could introduce plants, animals and children into the lives of the residents, what would happen?

They moved in one hundred parakeets, four dogs, two cats, plus a colony of rabbits and a flock of laying hens. They threw out all their artificial plants and put live plants in every room. Staff members brought their children to hang out after school; friends and family put in a vegetable garden at the back of the home and a playground for the kids. It was shock therapy and the effect on residents soon became impossible to ignore: the residents began to wake up and come to life. People who staff believed weren’t able to speak started speaking and those who had been completely withdrawn and immobile started coming to the nurses’ station and saying, “I’ll take the dog for a walk.”

Researchers studied the nursing home over two years, comparing a variety of measures for these residents with those of residents at another nursing home nearby. Their study found that the number of prescriptions required per resident fell to half that of the control nursing home – psychotropic drugs decreased in particular. The total drug costs fell to only 38% of the nearby home. Deaths fell by 15%. The researchers couldn’t say why, but the medic thought he could. “I believe that the difference in death rates can be traced to the fundamental human need for a reason to live.”

Given the gap between what we would like to provide and where we are now is largely determined by a resource we don’t have (money), how can we bridge the gap?
